JAKE PAUL BLASTS CLAIMS OF HAVING “ILLEGAL” NO KNOCKOUT CLAUSE FOR PREVIOUS FIGHTS

WHAT HAPPENED?

Jake Paul has hit back at claims that he had a ‘no knockout’ clause in the contract for his fight against Tyron Woodley, claiming the MMA fighter is bringing it up for “clout.”

Many claimed that Woodley had beaten Paul – especially after a late flurry – but the judges ultimately scored it as a split decision in favor of the social media star.

Look, it’s a bunch of losers trying to make s**t up to get in the headlines. Having a ‘no knockout clause’ in a contract, I’ve never heard of that. It’s highly illegal. I would be in jail.

That’s like rigging a fight. I would be in prison if that was a real thing. It’s all nonsense, it’s all bulls**t and they got exactly what they wanted out of it, which was for people to mention their name.

As Jake notes, the ‘no knockout’ clause is not a thing in professional bouts – though it has been used in exhibitions before.
